Sugar Fish by Kiilani Sugar Fish by Kiilani
I took a 3 day sugar class at a local college from a well-known sugar artist, Ewlad Notter. This is one of the display pieces I made.
This is my favorite piece! I love all the colors. The fish is airbrushed. It's been over 2 years now, and I still have these sugar pieces on my shelf.

Wow... It looks like a glass sculpture :O
That's incredible, I'd LOVE to have a go with isomalt, I've heard Buddy (from Cake Boss, the TV series) talk about it and he uses it a lot, in particular on a coral reef cake. The things that he achieved with it PALE in comparison to this... Really is amazing!
I think your use of colour is really appropriate, even though you have very bright colours, you've also used realistic tones (in the green and clear/white) which makes the piece look real but still fantasy (fanta-sea? xD).

Absolutely stunning!

Thanks so much!

Isomalt is a pretty neat thing to work with. It is not very forgiving though. Personally, I prefer to work with fondant or gumpaste, but you can get amazingly different results with isomalt. For instance, the blue coral piece was achieved by pouring the melted isomalt into a bowl of sugar.

Amazing :D I get the feeling that isomalt is that type of media that's like "get it right or start over again!" hehe
I will have to try it one day :D
